New version (1.04.01) is uploaded, mostly with minor enhancements - but one bug was fixed that makes this a highly recommended update: hard carriage returns were being inserted into edited text blocks at wrap locations, which could result in unwanted forced CRs in final output.

To all users,

Please post each new BUG REPORT in it's own thread. Do not use this thread for bug reports. You can add them to the The Form Letter Machine forum. After one is posted, we will add it to the The Form Letter Machine - Official Bug Tracking Thread. This will help eliminate the clutter that was the old bug tracking thread.

Thanks for your help!

Josh

v1.09.01 - March 15, 2009
  • Added Text Manipulation Functions.

Just a minor update that includes some functions that let you change the case of variables and remove @.., useful for using TFLM to respond to emails.

I hope to have a more substantial update soon.
